Getting into the mood for Christmas

I went on a one day course at Kathy's Patch in Folkestone yesterday and learned how to make Christmas table mats.  It was great fun and I learned lots!  Patterns for 6 tablemats and a table runner were provided.  I had time to make two, but hope to complete the set before the big day!
